The Parliament Speaker Mohammed al-Halboosi denounced the attack on unites of the popular crowd, which left a number of martyrs and wounded, considering it a violation of the sovereignty of Iraq.

H.E. the Speaker said that “while we demand everyone to exercise restraint, we renew our call for all forces to be under the command of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces,” stressing the need to adhere to providing protection to diplomatic missions and international coalition forces that are on Iraqi soil with the request and approval of the government and to unite efforts to complete the war against ISIS.

“We ask God, the Most High, the Mighty, to shower the martyrs of the painful accident with the blessings of his mercy and to grant the wounded a speedy recovery,” he added.
